Underground Storage Tank Worker Certification

Due to multiple recent vacancies on staff and increased COVID-related workloads, we are currently unable to return calls and emails within our normal processing times. Our primary focus is on reviewing and issuing licenses. If you have applied for licensure, please check the MY LICENSE online portal for real-time updates on the progress of your application. Answers to most other questions can be located using the links on the right-hand side of the page. Thank you for your patience while we attend to these priorities, and we will respond to your inquiry within five business days.

The Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing staffs the underground storage tank worker certification program. The Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development adopts regulations to carry out laws governing underground storage tank workers in Alaska. It makes final licensing decisions and takes disciplinary actions against people who violate licensing laws.

Statutes and Regulations

Alaska Statutes are passed by the Legislature. Regulations (also called the Alaska Administrative Code) are rules adopted by the Department to implement, interpret, and make specific the statutes. Both statutes and regulations have the force of law.

AS 46.03 specifically applies to underground storage tank workers. AS 08.01 - 08.03 and regulations 12 AAC 02 apply to all professions regulated by the division.

Proposed regulations are advertised in Alaska newspapers and we invite public comment on them. If you would like to receive notice of proposed regulations, please write to the regulations specialist and request that your name be added to the Underground Storage Tank Workers interested parties list. Please advise us if you move or wish to have your name removed from the mailing list.
